HIoTCoE Opportunity Statement – Analytics & Big Data

Value Based Healthcare and Patient Centricity are emerging as new global paradigms to address how health care is delivered and paid for. Critical to success will be adoption of advanced data management and analytics capabilities by healthcare organizations. A major driving force behind this transformation will be the concept of connectivity, connectivity between people, machines and environments. As IoT technology is implemented in healthcare systems, it will drive an exponential increase in the amount of data available for operational and clinical decision making. This unprecedented and transformational growth in data volume and velocity will make the application of streaming and edge IoT analytics an imperative not an option. As IoT technology tames the flood of data from connected patients, machines and environments it will drive true data driven decision making in to support and enable better and faster clinical decision making. IoT analytics will be critical to the promise of value-based care.
